Fall Means Rhinebeck

Knitters know Rhinebeck.  Precisely,  those connected to the 'net' at least know of Rhinebeck. Long on my bucket list, this year at last,  I am headed there.  

My time will mostly be spent working, helping Lyn Gemmell of Shelridge Farms with her booth as I did for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in May.  Work may be the first order of business, but  Lyn, generous, fun 'boss' that she is, makes sure  that  I have shopping time. I have the American cash ready and have alerted my credit card company about the possible overload.

But  unlike most other Canadian knitters on their way to Rhinebeck, I have not knit a 'fair' sweater.    Instead I have knit  'fair'  mittlets.  Who is the clever knitter I ask you?

Shirl the Purl's Mittlets, knit with Shelridge Yarns - of course.  Lyn tells me that the booth, close to  great, wide  barn doors, can become windy and cool.  Mittlets should let my fingers stay warm while I  tap in credit card numbers :)

I am travelling with my phone and tablet so pictures and blog postings will be possible. As long as the yarn fumes and excitement of accomplishing a bucket list item doesn't fog my memory.
